Kendall Jenner seen for the first time since Astroworld tragedy after saying she was 'truly broken'


Kendall Jenner was seen for the first time since attending rap star Travis Scott’s deadly Astroworld music festival in Houston over the weekend.

Just days after the horrific crowd crush that killed eight people and injured hundres, the supermodel, 26, headed to an appointment in Beverly Hills.  

For her meeting, the 818 Tequila founder wore a colorful crocheted sweater and matching bucket hat over her straightened glossy brown tresses.

Not long after her arrival, she returned to the solace of her car and drove away.

The Vogue cover girl’s outing came hours after she broke her silence about the deadly tragedy at Friday night’s Astroworld concert in Houston, Texas. 

Kendall, who was in attendance with sister Kylie Jenner, said she was ‘at a loss for words’ in an all-text post on Instagram Stories. 

Eight young people, aged from 14 to 27, were crushed to death as a sizable group of the 50,000 in attendance pushed toward the stage at NRG Park.

Kendall’s niece Stormi, three, who her younger sibling shares with Scott, was also present. None of the three sustained injuries. 

Her statement said: ‘I’m still at a loss for words over the news from Astroworld. I’m truly broken for the families that have lost loved ones and my prayers go out to everyone involved.

‘Sending everyone who has been affected all of my love and wishing them strength during this incredibly devastating and sensitive time.’

Older sister Kim Kardashian also offered her thoughts on social media, speaking on behalf of the family.

Travis was scheduled to perform on Sunday, November 13 at the Day N Vegas Festival at Las Vegas Festival Grounds.

The now-cancelled performance was set up like the deadly Astroworld concert with general admission and no assigned seats.

Friday’s Astroworld show had a crowd of 50,000 people with a surge toward the stage happening at 9:38 pm local time in Houston. 

Local firefighters and police called it a ‘mass casualty’ at that time, which took place 32 mins after Travis’ set began.

City officials knew that fans of the rapper were raucous after the Astroworld Festival resulted in a stampede that sent three people to the hospital two years earlier.

Houston bolstered the police force with more officers in the months leading up to the concert, while Live Nation, the organizers, hired additional private security.

But that didn’t prevent dozens of fans rushing through security barriers around the venue on Friday night before the festival started.

The show was called off 30 minutes before schedule, but half an hour after a ‘mass casualty event’ had already been declared by the fire department.

Fire Chief Samuel Peña said on Sunday that Scott and the organizers could have stepped in and paused the show.

‘The one person who can really call for and get a tactical pause when something goes wrong is that performer. They have that bully pulpit and they have a responsibility,’ Chief Peña told the NYT. 

‘If somebody would have said, ‘Hey, shut this thing down and turn on the lights until this thing gets corrected’ — and that coming from the person with the mic — I think could have been very helpful.’

Scott and Live Nation have declined to comment on the specifics but say they are co-operating with the police investigation. 

Scott, who said he was ‘devastated’ about the deaths and couldn’t ‘imagine anything like this happening,’ has twice been convicted for encouraging fans to jump security barriers and rush the stage at previous concerts.

Drake came out for the final songs of his performance as the chaos unfolded. 

Scott and Drake are being sued for ‘inciting the crowd’ by one concert-goer who says he was left ‘severely injured.’
